Here's what went down.

The entire sports world (minus Cleveland, I guess) is running off the high of watching the greatest drought in the various lands vanish last night, so I guess it's fitting that tonight's most important hockey game involves two perennial losers from cities that have felt sports helpless for the past little while. The Toronto Maple Leafs take on the Buffalo Sabres tonight at KeyBank Center; here's what's going down.
